April 29, 2018 – May 5,2018

On Friday,  May 4th, we went to one of our local elementary schools, Eads Elementary, and started a garden which is located behind the science lab. Under the hot sun, we revived two existing garden beds that hadn’t been touched in years. We pulled out weeds and old roots, found the skeleton of a small animal, connected with some of the kids and staff at the school, and most importantly, planted some new vegetables. We planted tomatoes, bell peppers, cayenne peppers, and eggplants. In addition to the vegetables, we   re-located some of the existing tulips and bushes. As a FIRST team, we appreciate the aid of powered tools, but a day with hard labor in a garden showed us just how hard life is for many people who do not have the means to access these tools to complete their own jobs.
